    Shared Memory for third party apps?

    My Android Dashboard software DashPanel is pretty popular with pCars users so:
    Any info about pCars 2 and shared memory?
    Does it still exist?
    Has it changed?
    If so can I see a preview of the structure so I can pre-empt supporting it?
    Even better can I get early access so that it is supported on release day?
    Seriously people email me the day of any sim release saying 'why isn't this supported!' like I have early access to everything

    Thanks.

    You had your chance for early access (2 years ago). The original PC1 format is supported.

    2 years ago I was too busy to know and probably too busy to consider joining again.
    No matter.

    Good to know.
    This is SharedMemory right?
    Because I heard the PC1 UDP format is supported via a legacy mode in the Dev stream but no mention of the memory format itself.

    PC1 UDP is the same as PC1.

    Out of curiosity, does this mean that apps that were made for PC1 and apps that were made for PC2 are mutually exclusive? i.e. do any apps that I use all have to be either for PC1, or all for PC2?

    Currently, yes. Basically, this is to allow existing apps to work while they (eventually) migrate to the new API once released.

    There is my answer! Thanks man got it in one
    Not a bad move providing legacy support.
    I wont be under pressure to rush something out the door after release.

    It's probably been fixed already, but it's "protocol". Not "protocal"

    That's an amazing feature, so simple (i know it's probably not) adds extra straight from the word go!
